Hi I'm Heather

I grew up in a small town. With loving parents who taught me everthing that I needed to know to be a good person and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a returned missionary. I love to play internet games, sleeping in everyday that i can. I have been a member my whole life, but through searching the scriptures, pondering and praying i have found out for myself that I know this church is true, and I Iove being a member.

Why I am a Mormon

  With the Gospel of Jesus Christ which is Faith in Jesus Christ, Repentance, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins, Recieving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end, this gives me a renewal of hope that I need everyday to live another day. 

How I live my faith

I live my faith by example. Thats is the only thing thats speakes louder than words. I am not a perfect example, but i strive to be what Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ wants me to be.

What is the priesthood?

Heather
The Priesthood is the Power of God given to man to act in his Name, for the Salvation of his children. In the Bible Jesus Christ gave Priesthood authority to his Apostles by the Laying on of Hands. They then were able to serve others by blessing them. Healing the sick and afflicted, Baptising people in the Name of Jesus Christ, and Preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those around them. That same authority has benn restored. Worthy male members of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints hold that authority. They are to serve others as Jesus Christ, and His apostles did.

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

They do not. If they do, they are not members of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints. "WE BELIEVE in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in Obeying, Honoring, and SUSTAINING THE LAW. Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Heather
YES, right now the Prophet today is Thomas S. Monson. God has always had prophets on the earth. Prophets like Moses, Noah, Abraham....God would not let any of his children live in a world where there is no direction for us to go. By having a Prophet of God on the earth today, we recive the direction in our lives where and what we need to do to return to live with Heavenly Father. Show more Show less

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Heather
The reason why we need a savior is stated in the Bible and The Book of Mormon. This is one of my favorite Scriptures telling me why i need a Savior. It's in the Book of Helaman 5:9 "O remember, remember, my sons, the words which king Benjamin spake unto his people yea, remember that there is no other way nor means whereby man can be saved, only through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ, who shall come yea, remember that he cometh to redeem the world." This is why we need a Savior. Jesus Christ is the ONLY one that forgive our sins or trespasses against God and our fellow man. Again... remember that there is no other way nor means whereby man can be saved, only through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

What is faith?

Heather
Faith is to believe in something that you can not see. For example I believe that there is a loving Heavenly Father, who loves me. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and my Savior and redeemer. I can not see them, but I KNOW that THEY exsist. " And now as I said concerning faith—faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true." Alma 32:21 Show more Show less

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Heather
One definition listed for ‘cult’ in Webster’s Dictionary is “a religion regarded as unorthodox.” The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is not a branch or break off any other church which others can say it is unusual. With some differing doctrine like the Godhead which is that Heavenly Father(God) Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost are three seperate beings, but all with the same purpose. People often misunderstand what we really believe and teach. I belive in God, I belive that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that his "Son came into the world not to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." (john 3:17) Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Heather
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. Meaning that the Book of Mormon adds a second witness that Jesus Christ really did live and that he was and is the Son of God. The Book of Mormon is written by Prophets of God as was parts of the bible. In this book you will find the teachings of Christs Gospel as He himself taught in the Bible. Show more Show less

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Heather
Heavenly Father has given us so many blessings. One of those blessings is to have a physical body. With all blessing we are to always give thanks for the blessing we recieve. By having bad eating habits or by getting unneeded piercing or tattoos or other things, this really does not show how greatful we are to have a body. The reason why our bodies are referred to as Temples in the Bible is because our spirit resides in our body. Show more Show less

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Heather
Coming to know our Father in Heaven is something that we all need in our lives. As we pray with a sincere heart, read the Scriptures( The bible, Book of Mormon, and the words of other prophet), and we obey His commandments we will be brought closer to God. Heavenly Father wants us to know Him. He loves us, we are his Children. He has given us these steps so we Can get to Know Him. Show more Show less

What is the Law of Chastity?

Heather
We have been given the sacred gift of procreation. Families are a gift of God and can be destroyed if we break His commandment of living the Law of Chasity which is we will have no sexual relationships with others before we are legally married and to only with our husband or wife after you are legally married. Our Father in Heaven only wants the best for us. If we obey His commandments he Will bless us in ways that we can not imagine. Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Heather
No. We do not worship Joseph Smith. We worship God who is our loving father in Heaven, and Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. We love Joseph Smith for Restoring Christs' Church once again to the earth. With out his humble prayer we wouldn't have the Blessings of the Priesthood, which is the power given to men to act in Chrits' name for the Salvation of His children. Thats me and you.

In whom should we have faith?

Heather
We should have Faith in Jesus Christ. As it states in Alma 38:9 9. And now, my son, I have told you this that ye may learn wisdom, that ye may learn of me that there is no other way or means whereby man can be saved, only in and through Christ. Behold, he is the life and the light of the world. Behold, he is the word of truth and righteousness. That means that our faith needs to be in Jesus Christ because he is the only one that can be saved. Show more Show less
